There are several ferry crossings along Kystriksveien. Just along the main road fv. 17 between Bodø and Steinkjer, there are six ferry crossings. Reservations are not necessary and you will find the ferry trips a pleasant experience.
During the high season (July), it is best to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure time.
Timetables to help plan your trip are available on Kystriksveien's ferry pages .
An interesting way to explore the coastline is by express boat. Try the Namdalingen boat from Namsos to Rørvik, or go on a round trip starting in Sandnessjøen.
Alternatively you can try a voyage with Hurtigruten (The Norwegian Coastal Voyage), which stops at Rørvik, Brønnøysund, Sandnessjøen, Nesna, Ørnes and Bodø. If you go from Bodø or Ørnes to Rørvik, you will enjoy a daytime cruise.
